^ tatii ^ gift , ^ fertivto [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 8 August 1868

^ tatii ^ gift , ^ fertivto Fromlhe AOantic for August ; PHYSICAL PHENOMENA . RECORD OF STRANGE OCCURRENCES . It Is proposed to give a plain and truthful statement of facts concerning a very marked case of the phenomena known to Spirit iuUistsus physical manifestations , regarded by scientific men generally as tricks of jugglery , and by common-sense , practical people looked upon as wonderful natural effects , the cause of -which has never been explained . This case in many respects resembles that of . the French peasant-girl , Angehque Cottin , so well described by Robert Dale Owen In the Atlantic Monthly of September , 1864 , in an article entitled the Electric Girl of La Perriere , which ( though well authenticated by Freneh journals ) took place twenty years before .. The chief interest which may attach to this article will lie In the fact , that the occurrences it describes are- of very recent date—having happened during the past few months—and are susceptible of verification ...

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 15 August 1868

AGRICULTURAL Preparation of Land for Wheat The Summer has been so dty that the ground has become eto hard as to make plowing difficult . The great drought was not confined to the United States and Canada ; the farmers of England can scarcely keep their stock alive , and at the great trial of Agricultural Machinery at Leceister , the ground was so hard as to make it almost impenetrable by ordinary plows ; one feature of the tri { tti field was heaps of broken plow shaves . Theoretical farmers recommended deep plowing—going down to the depth of ten or twelve inches , but practical men know that the depth of plowing must be regulated by the nature of the soil * , for if the active vegetable mold or surface soil is there and the subsoil cold and clayey , deep plowing i may bury the former too deep , and bring up too much of the latter . If the soil Is a deep loam or rich vegetable mold , deep plowing will , be beneficial , but . even in the best soils , exposure to the ameliorating infl...

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 15 August 1868

AGRICULTURAL Selections amd Condensations Cattle Food—The Grasses . The discussion of a subject so simple as the proper food for cattle may be thought superflous . In some localities , it would be so . But when we have the power , In most cases , to measurably control , both our Summer and Winter forage , it ls worth attention . The most natural Summer food for neat stock or all kinds is grass , and in Winter , hay . We have grasses in great variety—both natural and cultivated . * The natural grasses of all dry lands , which hold a firm sod , north of 85 deg . latitude , are such as cattle like , and thrive on ; and on some of the moister lands , and not absolutely «_ -. *» pv , they are also good . Our wild prairie lands , of the Western States , yield several 1 kinds of native grasses , and some of them , when young , or in their prime , are of great excellence , both in their fattening and mllk-produclng qualities . All our cleaned forest lands , of any fertility , produce a spon...

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 15 August 1868

HORTICULTURAL The Frnit Prospect . From nearly all parts of the country we are receiving unfavorable reports concerning the fruit crop . Apples may be regarded as almost a failure , for there are but few oh the trees and a considerable portion of these are ripening prematurely from the excessive heat , or falling to the ground , shriveled and worm-eaten . Some varieties stand heat better than other ? , because the roots strike deep into the soil and draw up moisture to sustain the growth of the wood , foliage and frnit , even in seasons of protracted dronght . It has been remarked this year that orchards ln which corn is growing appear to be more healthy and vigorous than those which are in grass , because the corn shades the soil from the rays of the sun . Pears promised well a month ago , but a change has come for the worse ; the foliage has suffered very much from the slug and other insects , the fruit has become stunted and in some places is ripening prematurely , or falling to ...

The Wool and Woolen Exposition . We regret that we have not that space to devote lo the late Wool and Woolen Exposition which Its importance would make appropriate , bnt the extent of the exhibition and the number and length of the addresses delivered render impossible any report , at all full .

Ebeneezer Ware , of Waukegan , RL , who exhibited 17 fleeces of yery fine Delaine wool , put up in a manner which called forth unanimous praise ; TowneBros , of Geneva , 111 ., wbo showed seven very fine fleeces , from their well known flock .
